How to add new slides in revolution slider?
Below Slide Editor Tab you can see the available slides and the current slide you are in highlighted as well.
Static/Global layers are those layers or slide features which will be visible in all other slides by default. For example if you want to display your image on all your slides, rather than adding same image to all slides its always good idea to put that on global/static layer. So any changes to that layer can effect on all slides. If you put same item on several slides then you will have to go each slide when you want to make change.
Add New Slide: There you can find option to Add new slide, Now you can set its background image and add your desired layers and other settings as this is completely new slide. You can say a fresh canvas to pain inside same slider.

If you click Add new directly that will give you completely new slide without any background or text or group layers. But copying will only require you to change slide background, text and other stuff as per your requirements.
